The article talks about configuring hotplug in order to get cameras working. Hotplug is now deprecated, it should be hotplug-free and replaced by udev if possible. --Pholie 06:21, 12 January 2006 (EST)

I have just tried it and it still works - the new udev system hasn't changed any of the functional details here, so everything seems fine. Note that there now seems to be a 'camera' group installed by default, so one wouldn't need to create one.

What would interest me is whether there is a reason not to put the files '/etc/hotplug/usb/usbcam.usermap' and '/etc/hotplug/usb/usbcam' in the libgphoto2 package, thus removing the need for most of this wiki page?
